This picture is amazing all together. I can barely describe it. but I will break it down into ratings.

1) Why 5 stars for Vision? The look of this picture is very contrasting; with the bright orange hair and the dark scenery.

2) Why 5 stars for Originality? I haven't seen many photos with contrast like this. It really shocked me when I first saw this.

3) Why 4.5 stars for Technique? The picture is great, but for me personally, i would have liked to see a night setting with moonlight, considering the already dark setting.

4) Why 5 stars for Impact? I felt a lot of emotion in this picture. The meaning behind this is very wonderful and amazing.

If you do not find this fair, I can understand, but don't dislike this picture for my critique.

I think the water has some deeper meaning into it.I think it represents her emotions, how she "drowns" (well almost) in them

My wife was diagnosed with this illness at a young age. Your photo captures beautifully the dark grief and strange behaviours of this cruel illness.

I like this very much.

very pretty... how does the model stay afloat? is it later edited or, is there a raft under her?
I love the contrast between her hair and the background..

Just like in soul, you seem to be really great at the contrast of greys against red. It's really amazing. Keep using it!

It's a interpretation of "madness", if you can call it that way (dementia means in Latin madness). :)

Well, this is pretty basic, nothing really dramatic!
I used to used sai a long time ago, and well, if you want to change eye color, you can paint it, right? I don't know any other program that could be like photoshop, being free the program...:(
